Petition of the Week: Jewish Voice for Peace “Kerry Prove You’re Serious”
As Israel announces 1,200 new illegal settlements this week, Secretary of State John Kerry has urged Palestinians “not to react adversely.”
Does Kerry care more about the appearance of a peace process than taking a stand against actions that are a barrier to fair and fruitful negotiations?
If Kerry won’t take a strong stand against settlements, there’s no reason to believe that this round of peace talks are credible. In fact, pressuring Palestinians to make “hard compromises” while giving Israel a free pass to violate international law actually makes things worse.
Secretary Kerry needs to hear from us: sign our petition today.
